Giving back is important to us. Throughout 2016, we were able to do this in many ways, including short notice contributions to Standing Rock, numerous donations to non-profit organizations and cultural events, and our ongoing partnership with the Evergreen Longhouse that led to the Thunderbird Arrives blanket. However, this is the first time we've ever taken our gifting game to the streets!

Watch as some of our younger staff members - Jorge, Kelly, Stephanie, and Kimberly - decide what to do with stack of beautiful Eighth Generation wool blankets on a cold winter day.
